John Deere will be bringing more than 150 office jobs to Chicago’s Fulton Market thanks in part to Stream Realty Partners.
The manufacturer of agricultural machinery, heavy equipment, and diesel engines has just signed a lease for more than 38,000 square feet at 800 West Fulton. The new space is 160 miles west of John Deere’s headquarters and is intended to help the company boost its software development arm.
Developed by New York-based Thor Equities Group, the building is now more than 70 percent leased. Stream Chicago’s Jack McKinney Jr., Managing Director; Mark Bâby, Managing Director; and Benjamin Cleveland, Executive Vice President, represented Thor in the transaction. David Mahoney of CBRE represented John Deere.
The 19-story structure is in the burgeoning Fulton Market District, an area popular for companies seeking to capitalize on the city’s young, tech-savvy workforce, according to The Real Deal, a real estate publication.
